Crockpot Lasagna & Devine Breadsticks

Someone on PYP requested this recipe - I posted it and it seems like everyone loves it. This is the only way I have been making Lasagna for a few years - we really like it.

CROCKPOT LASAGNA

8 uncooked lasagna noodles
1 pound ground beef (or substitute w/ ground turkey)
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
28-ounce jar spaghetti sauce
1/3 cup water
4-oz. can sliced mushrooms, optional
15 oz. low-fat ricotta cheese
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Brown ground beef in skillet. Drain. Stir in Italian seasoning.Break noodles into thirds. Place half in bottom of greased crockpot. Spread half of ground beef mixture over noodles in crockpot.On top of beef, layer 1/2 of sauce, 1/2 of water, 1/2 of mushrooms (opt.), 1/2 of ricotta, and 1/2 of mozerella cheese. Repeat all layers.Cover. Cook for 5 hours on low.


Want a great breadstick to go along with this? (I found the recipe at Norah's)

Devine Breadsticks

1 ½ cup warm water
1 tablespoon yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
3 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
Butter for the pan

Mix all ingredients (except butter) and knead for three minutes. Let stand 10 minutes. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Melt desired amount of butter on baking pan (the original recipe called for 1 entire stick of butter - that was way too much for my taste - I use a couple tablespoons). Roll out dough about 1/8-inch thick and cut into strips. Place in butter and put close together. Sprinkle with garlic salt and parmesan cheese. Cover and let rise 30 minutes. Bake 20 minutes at 375 degrees.

This sounds yummy! I've never done lasagna in a crock pot before! I'm going to have to give this one a try.

I just tried this for lunch today! EXCELLENT! I used ground turkey, substituted zucchini for mushrooms, and used low fat cottage cheese for ricotta (because I didn't have ricotta) and it still turned out great! I loved it so much I wrote a post about it and linked back here for everyone to get the recipe! Thanks so much!
